Stopped here for lunch. Restaurant busy. Went for a mixed Paella, with vino. Table at the front watching the world go by. A good Paella, would serve 3/4 for a small lunch. Paella served from a trolley which is a nice touch. Service wise ok. The waiters put the plates and cutlery on the table but don't lay them out... More

The food was ok as we was just passing by . It took quite a while to get somebody to serve us . Food came out nothing special just simple but what you expect for the price . When we payed our bill which was on 10.20 we gave 20 euros and would have left a small tip when we... More

The fish of the day is over priced and not very appetizing. This must be our fifty visit over the years and we felt standards had fallen. Perhaps this is as a result of a drop in patrons, or visa versa.

My wife and I have always enjoyed our meals at La Barca. In fact, it has been our 'go to' restaurant. However, after our last visit we have to agree with other reviewers and regular customers by saying that La Barca is living of its reputation. We found the waiters miserable! The waiter at our table especially so!! The food... More

I have been going to this restaurant for over 20 years and it was excellent once but is now poor, the food is average at best, the waiters are abrupt and rude (they bumped into my chair at least seven times and did not even acknowledge) and it is not cheap. The only positive is the view of the beach... More

Being able to eat near the sea was the initial attraction to this restaurant, but it was also close to our hotel. Lovely meal, helpful waiters and excellent food, much enjoyed.

We usually visit this restaurant at least once during our yearly visit to Tenerife . We were a family of 8 and were soon found a suitable table . We only wanted a quick lunchtime snack taking a break from our day at the beach . We were served promptly and attentively for a reasonable price . Thanks once again... More

I and our family have been visiting this restaurant for the past 15 years and always been our favourite. I have read a lot of the recent reviews and they more or less confirm my visit yesterday...awful is best I can say. The Sole Menuier was soggy and frankly disgusting. Canarian potatoes were the smallest I have seen in all... More

We were four persons having a family dinner. Fish was our preference and we said to the waiter that we would like grilled sole, which cost some 15.9 EUR per person. The waiter in stead warmly recommended the fresh fish of the day. As he did not mention any price, we thought it would be somewhere close to our original... More
